CONSERVATION & ECOLOGY
Fly fishing has a vibrant connection to environmental conservation!
WILD & NATIVE TROUT
Conserving and maintaining wild trout has been at the forefront of the connection between fly fishing and conservation. The premier angling conservation organization, Trout Unlimited, originated to protect and restore wild trout and their habitats.
Today we're beginning to appreciate the value of maintaining or, in many cases, returning trout to their native habitats. Wyoming Mountains & Home-waters makes the case for native trout conservation while exploring the connection of trout to healthy ecosystems. In essence, looking beyond the streambanks as we protect the resources that make our sport so incredible.
BEYOND THE STREAMBANKS
To successfully conserve trout and their aquatic habitats we must look beyond the streambanks. Wyoming mountains & home-waters threads fishing stories with conservation science to relate how protecting wolves, grizzly bears, wilderness, and forests relate to trout conservation and the sport of fly fishing.
FROM SAGEBRUSH STEPPE TO MOUNTAIN FORESTS
Wyoming is a landscape of sagebrush valleys and mountain forests. Trout and other wildlife abound throughout, but only so long as people are dedicated to conserving wild places.
